    Family tradition asserts that the name of Ladd is of French origin, and that it has existed in England from the time of the conquest (1066). The name comes from Le Lade, which was undoubtedly the original French spelling. The name Ladd is peculiar to county Huntingdon.Daniel Ladd was from Wiltshire, England and according to family tradition, Daniel's father, Nathaniel, was from Dartmouth, in Devon. Daniel took the required oath of allegiance in order to sail in the ship `Mary and John', which left London on March 24, 1633-4, with Robert Sayres, master. The ship landed at Nantasket in Boston Harbor. He did not settle permanently in Dorchester, as did most of his fellow passengers. Instead he went to Ipswich where in 1637 he was granted six acres of land, upon which he erected a dwelling. In 1644 he sold his property there to Henry Kingsbury. Earlier on October 29, 1639, Daniel was one of the first settlers of Salisbury, Massachusetts, where he was granted one or more acres for a house lot, and four acres for planting purposes. He shortly afterward went to Haverhill, Massachusetts, with eleven others, and was one of the first settlers of that town, and resided there until his death. On 7 September 1640 he was granted 2 acres of meadow.Daniel owned and cultivated several farms and was very prominent among the original proprieters. In 1646 he was taxed forty pounds, and in 1659 was granted permission with Theophilus Shatwell to erect a saw mill on Spigott (Spicket) river. In 1668 he was one of the selectmen, and at the breaking out of King Phillip's War (1675) he and others were appointed to designate what houses should be garrisoned.Daniel's son, Nathaniel, was implicated in Gove's Rebellion against Governor Cranfield. He was examined on December 6, 1683 by Judge Barefoot, who accepted the surety of friends for his future good behavior, and was never brought to trial. He was a constable in 1688. In the summer of 1690 he volunteered in the New Hampshire contingent of an expedition fitted out in Massachusetts to protect the settlers in Maine from the aggression of the Indians. Nathaniel was severely wounded in a fight with Indians at or near Cape Elizabeth(Maquoit). He returned to Exter, where he eventually died from the effects of his injuries.Source: Noyes, Libby and Davis. Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire.Sterns, Ezra.

    LADD, DANIEL, Ipswich, came in the Mary and John, 1634, by tradit. call. s. of Nathaniel, was one of the first townsmen of Salisbury, a. 1639, but, perhaps, not long there, and bec. perman. inhab. of Haverhill aft. b. of one or two ch. By w. Ann he had Elizabeth b. 11 Dec. 1640; Daniel, 26 Sept. 1642; Lydia, 8 June 1645; the three being on rec. at S.; Mary, 14 Feb. 1647; Nathaniel, 10 Mar. 1602; Ezekiel, 16 Sept. 1654; and Sarah, 4 Nov. 1657. Both he and his w. were liv. 1678. Elizabeth m. at Haverhill, 14 May 1663, Nathaniel Smith. Part of the fam. tradit. that Nathaniel, f. of Daniel was from Dartmouth, in Devon, may be reasona. eno. at least it bears no inherent improb. as the more fondly desir. clause of the story does, that he was one of the first comers to Plymouth; for that phrase belongs only to those wh. arr. in the yrs. 1620, 1, and 3, of wh. was no Ladd; and minute inquiry even shows, there was nobody in either of the three passeng. lists with that bapt. name. DANIEL, Haverhill, eldest s. of the preced. m. 24 Nov. 1668, Lydia Singletary, was rep. 1693, and 4. EZEKIAL, Haverhill, br. of the preced. took o. of fidel. 28 Nov. 1677.

Mary and John (1634)
This Mary and John, to be distinguished from the 1630 voyage, sailed in early 1634. The passenger list is somewhat more certain by virtue of lists of oathtakers dated 24 and 26 Mar 1633/4, but it does not cover the entire list.
Sailed: late Mar 1633/4 from Southampton, England under Master Robert Sayres
Arrived: June? 1634 at Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony
